Protestors in Dublin have attached dresses to the 'Stay' singer's posters to cover up the nudity featured on them.
Rihanna has sparked the ire of residents in Dublin this week with her nude 'Diamonds' tour posters, leading several people to take the unusual step of stapling dresses to the billboards to cover them up.
The 'We Found Love' star's tour posters feature her 'Unapologetic' album cover, which shows Rihanna' nude and only covered up by song lyrics, and have been posted up around the Irish city ahead of her show at the Aviva Stadium.
However, several beady eyed residents have spotted a quiet protest against the posters as someone has been attaching items of clothing to the posters to cover up Rihanna's nude body.

Rihanna was also spotted out and about in Manchester yesterday (13th June) after performing two consecutive shows at the Manchester Evening News Arena.
The 'Stay' singer opted to go casual for her day out in the city in ripped jeans and a black t-shirt featuring a picture and slogan of Woody Harrelson in the 1994 film Natural Born Killers.
